I need some input. In the beginning of all this, I knew the models and specs well, but now it is all a blur.

I am getting a manual badlands, no matter what, but was waiting for mansquatch.

If I forgo squatch and go ahead and order a manual badlands, then install this (or a similar kit), would I be losing anything? I don't think so, but there is a ton of information to go through.

The other way to get the 4.7 gear ratio is on the 2.3 with the 7 speed manual BL - am I wrong?

So it was a factory sasquatch, and got all that yanked out and replaced with a 4" lift that would be 4" on a base? Assuming all new coilovers all around?
No… the upper control arm was changed and 2” spacers added to give an overall 4” lift.

My question is more about the lift height comparison. It was a Sasquatch, but if it's a "4" lift that 4 inches is over a base, not Sasquatch+4".
No… they changed the upper control arms to a bds control arm and added 2” spacers. The Sasquatch is already a 2” lift from factory, so this makes it a total of 4” using the factory suspension.

Note that sasquatch is 1.1" lift compared to base (not 2"). The kit includes a combination of strut spacers, preload collars, and bump stop spacers that are used to reconfigure the factory coilovers.

We haven’t gotten to do that specific test on that specific setup yet but I would be slightly nervous. If you don’t do SAS, what will you do for fender flares to get coverage? These tires SHRED the side of your Bronco with shrapnel!
Would adding sas flares to normal badlands fix the shrapnel issue? Loaded non sas question

With the exception of the obvious wheels and tires the only other thing you will lose out on are the wider fender flares. Since you are going with the manual BL you will already have the 4.7 gears that the Squatch also adds.
